University Requires Students to Be Social Justice Warriors

453

At the University of Massachusetts Amherst, students aren’t just encouraged to join the left’s social justice revolution, they are required to do so. According to the public university’s latest guidelines, incoming freshmen are being told that they must “create change toward social justice” and embrace a worldview that values “cultural differences.” The university insists that none of this comes with a political agenda, an argument that some on the faculty find absurd.

“This has happened over the past 30 years, with ever more brazen efforts to control not only language, but also attitudes and thoughts,” Daphne Patai said in an interview with Fox News. Patai, who teaches Brazilian literature at UMass, is strongly opposed to the university’s cloying demands.

The guidelines, in addition to commanding students to pursue a life dedicated to recognizing and confronting social injustices, requires freshmen to take diversity classes that undoubtedly come with a very narrow, liberal point of view.

But according to Amherst administrators, there is nothing wrong with what they are doing.

“Diversity-related courses should encourage students to value cultural differences, recognize inequalities and injustices, and integrate that knowledge with critical thinking skills to address societal problems as they might choose, but [is] not based on any particular political or philosophical point of view,” a spokesman told Fox News.

Suuurrre.

You can assume one of two things here. Either these academics are too wrapped up in their own liberal bubble to even recognize that their ideas about social justice are, to say the least, politically controversial….or they are freely lying to cover up what they know to be ideological indoctrination.

There are probably some who fit into the latter category, but the majority of them almost certainly belong to the former. Conservative values are so foreign to the way they were raised and educated that they barely give them any legitimacy whatsoever. Not in the classroom, not in their personal lives. To them, the only reason anyone would oppose, say, Black Lives Matter, is that they are racist. And it goes down the line – feminism, LGBT issues, immigrants, and so on. They don’t see their point of view as an opinion; they see it as fact. And they teach it to their students as such.

Unfortunately, that’s only the tip of the iceberg. These professors and researchers want to make their mark on the world. That means coming up with original ideas and plans and schemes to further their social justice agenda. So, using the softest of the sciences, they construct elaborate social theories that aim to present the U.S. in an increasingly-oppressive light. The worse they can make things seem, the more “progress” they can get away with.

And then they send out graduating class after graduating class, challenging them to top whatever silliness has come before them.

Yes, this is a warning about where things are headed, but it’s also an explanation for why things are the way they are.

    I should go to this school and devote myself to eliminating hate groups such as Islam, La Raza and LGBT Extortionists.

      A truly original thought. And it is a conservative thought. Which is either prohibited or strongly discouraged in the Ivy League. A student group here in Des Moines went to the “Student Council” (lackeys of the most liberal/socialist “instructors”) to form a group of like-minded people and a small amount of money for coffee and do-nuts. “Alarming” “too little diversity” “Not all inclusive” “discriminatory” “not reflective of Drakes values”. The litany was the standard boiler-plate denial of by race baiting, not liberal enough, and all the rest of that crap. It’s good for boys and girls to use the same bathrooms, the homos to have a place supported by student funding – “student fees”, and a host of other “socially just and progressive programs”, paid as part of the price of admission. If “Free Speech” doesn’t take the form of pushing for and advocating any and all psychological and social abnormalities, then it is hate speech, which can be almost anything said about or to anybody, including “Good Morning”. You see where this is going: straight down the road to the destruction of our present culture, already infected by the power of queers, pedophiles, and other antisocial trends’
      “And I saw a pale horse, and upon him was death” or words very close to that. which is what these kids are being taught to want, the death of the greatest nation ever to exist, and its replacement by a socially just and more equal world under U.N. rule. In that about 70% of UN members are controlled by royalty and or despots, that should put America in it’s place, shouldn’t it? After all the evil white people have created, including lives for the very poorest of us, whom we care for, and the idealism of India, where millions live on the street, and thousands die of hunger every day. Our poorest live like middle class people compare to India’s poor: Welfare, food stamps, housing, medical – all for free, courtesy of the taxpayers. THAT is the America they want, as long as they get their share of the nearly unimaginable corruption that exists there begins to exist here, and makes ours look like chump change by comparison ( I know we have a good amount of it, but not on that scale). All right, now let’s all you people who have busted your asses for years to get where you are, family, house, car, savings, investments, businesses, what ever: cough it up. Your whiteness (and – gads-maybe even brownness or blackness too) is responsible for society’s ills, so you must surrender all, quietly, and try to start over. 85 and disabled -too bad, old timer, you are no longer useful, just go away and die some where else. Matter of fact, why don’t you all go away and die. Save us the trouble of exterminating you later.

        Whoever said that freedom isn’t free was right particularly when a progressive gets a hold of it.

      2. Athanasios1 says

        WOW!!! Fantastic. Thank-you. You sound like my fifth grade teacher Mrs. Margaret Orsborn. She showed us the ills of this emerging decadent generation in 1968. She taught at a public Grade school (Morrill School at 6011 S Rockwell) in Chicago back in the days when truth and justice was more important than political correctness and legitimizing the Mentally Deranged Sexual Deviates through “marriage”. She was strongly anti-communist and a REAL Civil Rights organizer that stood for real equality among all citizens of all races. Your writings have given me hope and they should be published and taught for Social Studies. God bless you and keep writing!

        1. DHConner says

          Thank you for your kind words. I am just direct and say what I think and feel in a manner that is explanatory and has researchable facts to support them. Sometimes, it’s simply life experience and lying is a detestable trait I do not engage in unless life and limb are in danger. You were fortunate to get a teacher who didn’t belong to the “progressive” school of teaching and thinking. I graduated in Jan. 1965, and as I look back, that previous fall we got our first indoctrination in “diversity’. 2,000 students were herded like so many cattle into the auditorium, where the principal proceeded to explain there would be a new student who came from California, and that he looked different from us, and didn’t dress the way we did. Blah Blah. So please make him feel welcome and be friendly to him – it’s a big change for him too (???). Wait a minute 2,000 people are supposed to accept what by now we could already surmise was a wierdo, just for 1 kid? I think the Principal would have thrown all of us overboard just to save him. All I remember is he wore a long double strand necklace made up of many bones of small animals, hand-cut pieces of different metals indifferent shapes, some polished stones, clam-shells, other bits and pieces of shells, and different kinds of wood. and Lord only knows what else, Cowboy boots, jeans, blue jeans, checkered shirt, and usually some kind of a dirty, ragged cap or cowboy hat. Mr. Natural Hisself, I guess. It’s all the animal bones that creeped me out. Yes the First Americans and their descendants down to today wear eagle feathers and grizzly claws, but not little bones from little animals. I’ve never even seen a picture of a First American wearing any bone, excepting as a sort of breastplate, stacked in rows horizontally. Now kisa Umpty nine million holes and piercings and look like some aged head-hunter from Papua, hair of a gazillion colors and bizarre cuts – I suppose it’s way to “differentiate” one’s self. You just got lucky and hit a gold mine with her. She had her head screwed on straight, knew which hay was p, talked straight and didn’t fudge, kept a pretty much self-disciplined classroom, taught right from wrong, and told the real truth, not the gobbldegook she herself may have been under pressure to teach, but in an upright moral stance, refused to. I moved up there in late ’66, and I found high school kids a whole to be quite ignorant. Maybe it was just those schools, but people in their 69’s and more said there’s not that many good teachers and they couldn’t control the classroom anyway, and the school security was afraid to do anything, and I thought “if they pulled that crap in Des Moines, they’d be bounced out so fast they’d be on the concrete before they realized they were moving”. Now of course, high schools all over the nation resemble a case of the inmates running the mental institution. Had a friend in Omaha who planned to teach math for 30 years and then quit. Just before his 29th year stated, he quit, Could not take the crap any more. Said it was basically a whole lot of mouthy, threatening, dangerous kids He was a Viet Nam vet with lots and lots of combat experience, and he wasn’t lacking for courage. He used to stay with us when there were rifle matches at Van Meter, west of Des Moans. One evening that previous summer he said “I fought for my country once, was nearly killed many times, had a lot friends killed, but I didn’t come back here to teach school and risk getting killed doing that”. So I thought he might just be about be ready to call it a day. I’m glad he did, they had a teacher shot in that school the next spring. Thanks again. and my best to you.

            J.D. Salinger CAN’T hold a candle to you. You really have to publish your thoughts and perspective on what is happening. Send a copy of this to Dr. Michael Savage (Dr. Michael Alan Wiener). You would make an excellent replacement for him when he is absent from his show. I am going to have to follow your posts and improve my writing/thought skills.
            Thanks again

      A very interesting thought.

  2. jackhy says

    Colleges are breeding grounds for indoctrination of our youth just like Nazi Germany and all communist nations have utilized. If all educational institutions do not monitor or provide better control over their curricula and teachers, then they willingly or unwittingly contribute to the poisoning of young inquiring minds as well as the destruction of our sacred tenets!! Social diversity and political correctness is an out of control plague on society!

  3. Bruce Deitrick Price says

    I have been very disappointed to find that all of this is happening at Princeton. I would like it to stand resolutely aside from all the fads and fashions. But no! Princeton’s big thing now is “inclusion.” Which I think will be used to justify a lot of Intellectual exclusion. Princeton is also discussing a diversity requirement or a social justice requirement or whatever it might be called. There was once an athletic requirement; there was once a requirement that students attend a religious service of some kind. All of these things were abolished on the grounds that students were old enough to think for themselves. You can forget about that. These Ivy league schools want to think for you.

    1. John P says

      There is not an ivy league school that does not fall in line with liberalism

      1. Jimmy Quick says

        If they truly wanted social justice they need to impeach Obama, and arrest Hilary as well as all BLM rioters.

        And that’s just a start.

        Fake justice is not justice. It is tyranny.

    2. Ron says

      I repeat my position on this issue:
      College in America has become HIGHLY overrated, especially the schools of the vaunted “Ivy League.” IMHO, only five institutes of higher learning in the United States are deserving of one dime of federal taxpayer money…the United States Military Academy, United States Naval Academy, United States Coast Guard Academy, United States Air Force Academy, and the United States Merchant Marine Academy. The graduates of these five institutions provide valuable services to our nation. The rest of the colleges/universities in our country should be forced to sink or swim on their own merits or lack thereof. Where are the trade and vocational schools that once provided the instruction that enabled millions of American young people to pursue worthwhile and satisfying careers? Where is it written that EVERY young person MUST go to college in order to be successful? In recent years, our campuses have become indoctrinatory breeding grounds for political correctness and anti-American activism, churning out unemployable graduates with unmarketable “skills” in useless fields. Bastions of leftist progressivism, these schools are led and staffed by the very 1960’s radicals who once stormed and occupied the same administration buildings in which they now have offices. It is long past time for a Herculean cleaning of these Augean stables!

      1. Gerry Costa says

        Great post Ron and absolutely 100% right. I liken these teachers and professors to the cowards who ran to Canada and others who burned their draft cards in protest while some of us went off to war. They are NOT qualified to teach our young and it seems like these Universities of today are embracing their way of thinking. i really like your idea that only the Military Academies get Federal funding.

        1. Ron says

          Thanks, my friend!

        2. Bob says

          They Ran Just Like Herr Trump. Definitely not qualified to be the next Commander In Chief. Sorry princess but your little Hitler wannabe is nothing but a draft dodging coward. LOL!

    3. jreb57 says

      “These Ivy league schools want to think for you”
      Go to a good engineering school and forget the non sciences such as “political science” and “social science”. The aforementioned subjects used to be called civics and sociology before they got too big for their britches.

    4. Deborah G says

      That is thw saddest thing. Princeton used to be the bastion of conservative values. Guess Moochelle f-ed that place up too.

  4. John P says

    Pull all federal funding from all state universities then pull all state monies this will get rid of the free loading professors and school deans. make the useless morons find a job, if they can qualify for any thing.

    1. AKLady says

      Education for the rich, sounds like what the Foinding Fathers left behind in Europe.

      1. jreb57 says

        Education in Europe was originally intended to be for the rich. The really useful skills and knowledge were obtained through apprenticeships and guilds.

        Who exactly are these Foinding Fathers you speek of, AKL???

    2. BARRY SOETERO says

      “Turns out that the driving force behind California’s tax hikes is the growing unfunded
      liability of UC’s pension fund and other items of questionable compensation. Allysia Finley with the Wall Street Journal explains: “UCs this year needed to spend an additional $73 million on pensions, $30 million on faculty bonuses, $24 million on health benefits and $16 million on collectively bargained pay increases. The regents project that they will require $250 million more next year to finance increased compensation and benefit costs.”

      Moreover, Finley reveals the extraordinary level of waste in the UC system: “Ms. Napolitano [President of the University of California] says that the UCs have cut their budgets to the bone, yet her own office includes nearly 2,000 employees—a quarter of whom make six-figure
      salaries. An associate vice president of federal government relations earns $273,375 a year, plus $55,857 in retirement and health benefits, according to the state controller’s office. Thirty professors at UC Santa Cruz rake in more than $200,000 in pay, and most faculty can
      retire at 60 and receive a pension equal to 75% of their final salary. More than 2,100 retirees in the university retirement system collected six-figure pensions in 2011.”

    Tell these colleges to bite the big one and go to a tech school and learn a trade.

    1. Geebub says

      Dandy I agree. There is a lot to learn at a tech school too. I just think they need to get rid of the liberal profs with tenure. Don’t get me wrong, some are great. If you don’t agree with liberal ones , you flunk!

  6. imbog says

    All children ,when first born will have a micro chip installed in their brain so every one will think and act the same and prevent differences of opinion that ,God forbid,,might make some one feel different

    1. AKLady says

      You read too much sciwncw fiction.

      1. imbog says

        And from what i have seen of your comments you do not read enough. .. I am an 85 year old veteran who is college educated and love the fact we are all Americans with different opinions but please don’t feel that we should all feel the same way on social issues

        1. AKLady says

          Sci-fi is fiction.
          Your microchip senario is over-the-top scientifically.
          The human brain is far too complicated. It could not be controlled by a any chip that would fit in the skull.

          1. jreb57 says

            As of right now, you can have a microchip implanted in your pet which will identify you as their owner and can be used to track them should they get lost. If something like this were implanted in you, it could be used to track your travels even as your cell phone can if you leave it on.

          2. AKLady says

            The chip reader must be next to the skin of the animal to obtain the chip data.
            The chip cannot be used to track the animal.

            It is only worthwhile if it is picked up by animal control. — and then only if it is in the area that has the identity data.

            If your pet becomes lost on a vacation, the chip could be totally useless.

          3. jreb57 says

            If animal control picks up your animal and gives you a call saying we have your cat or dog, come get him/her, then they have “tracked” your animal. But there is more. Credit cards are now going to chip enabled cards to help prevent ID theft. Some chips can be read at a distance, like the one the sun pass. Crimes have been solved using this kind of data. Are you unaware of this? I thought you were a lawyer.

  7. Francisco Machado says

    From a Darwinist standpoint the zealot ideologues have the edge over the rational analysts and problem solvers who lack the wolfpack mentality that engenders mob action, and numbers, especially mindless ideologically focused numbers, constitute overwhelming power. This is regularly demonstrated in politics where the best carny barker draws the crowd – with little regard for whether the promised show can be delivered or even should be. The best politician is a Pied Piper with a rational, workable program, sound plans for executing it and a realistic understanding of the ability of the tax base to sustain it. Probability, unfortunately, makes the likelihood of that vanishingly small. Government subsidized beer drowns out any mention of budget constraints.

  8. ddearborn says

    Hmmm

    It seems that “freedom” isn’t part of the plan at Amherst. And as far as individual liberties are concerned, the administration there is ironically enough in the same camp as Bush Jr.; The Constitution and Bill of Rights are obviously in their opinion are just god damn pieces of paper…….I suggest that the Amherst take their brain washing curriculum and shove it. Hopefully someone will found a new movement on the campus. Perhaps a William F. Buckley Jr. society…….

            One small problem Under God no longer applies. Now try and refute that.

          2. AKLady says

            Something you have failed to notice — there is no name, or religious faith attached to the “God” cited by our Faounding Fathers.

            You see, most of the Founders were not what one would call Christians. The majority were Naturalists, Unitarians and Deists.

            What they were not was orthodox and born-again Christians who intended to found a Christian nation

          3. Beeotchstewie says

            I was not aware of that, where can I find some research on it? Still, the fact that God has been removed completely, but it’s OK to put Allah in there is hypocritical at a minimum. (As in having students learn the Muslim call to prayer) Islam is completely the antithesis of Christianity and as such, should receive the same treatment.

    college is a rip off. a breeding ground for communists. who try to get out of paying by voting for communists.

      1. Gareth Ellzey says

        The operative word is ‘education ‘ which should provide two things: the ability to think critically, and a marketable skill. These institutions of ” higher learning” fail at both, on balance.

        1. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

          They are no more than centers for indoctrination in liberalism and communism.

          1. Mark B says

        2. Conservative says

          They won’t even all ‘free speech’. They do not know the ‘peaceful demonstrations’ are allowed but acting like total wild animals escaped from the wild. They think vulgarity, filth from the mouths and action, burning the American flag and raising the Mexican flag shows how ignorant they are.
          How doe raising the Mexican Flag show they want to assimalate in the U.S

          1. glenn398 says

            No it shows how ignorant we are for putting up with it.

        3. jreb57 says

          Unfortunately thinking critically seems to have gone by the wayside. If it were common, many new age ideas would have fallen by the wayside, casualties of critical thought.

          1. ABO says

            Well said and accurate.

        4. AKLady says

          Well-educated people make very good money.

          Bad news for you — the ability to think critically is a very marketable skill.

          I have even worse news for you — colleges and universities to not provide “learning”. They cannot do so. Schools only provide the opportunity to learn.

          Only the student can learn.
          As is obvious, many young people waste their parents money.

            Despite all the brainwashing propaganda you have been fed, Socialism is not Communism, nor is it the first step on the path to Communism.

            Christianity and social responsibility are basically one and the same. Suggest you review Matthew 25:35-40. Maybe you should remember Christ provided free medical care.

            Socialism is the gateway to communism. When a given country is totally socialistic, the next step of the socialistic gov’t is to confiscate all person property: “a redistribution of wealth for the good of all of the people” (except the directors of Marxism who control 99% of the wealth, anyway), of course . There you have it.

          11. AKLady says

            Maybe you should tell that to these nations: India. Israel, Macau, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Austria, Denmark, Finland,, France, Germany, Guernsey, Jersey, Iceland, Isle of Man, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Columbia, Australia, and New Zealand.

          12. TheBlues says

            You are a socialist who believes that everything that is not private property should be owned by the government. That is happening in America with healthcare, transportation, etc., ad infinitum. I suppose you are happy this is the way America is going. My ancestors will not own the ground they stand on. They will live in a tiny condo that the gov’t owns. That would make you so happy, you would cry tears of joy. You are Evil personified.

          13. AKLady says

            Why do you need to tell this lie?
            Why do you embarrass America this way?
            Why do you believe it is acceptable to lie?
            Why do you believe it is acceptable to repeat lies?

          14. TheBlues says

            Because I expose you for what you are – a semi-living Lie!

          15. Clay Fitzgerald says

            The only one around here embarrassing their self (America?) is you, babe!

          16. TheBlues says

            The fact you are alive embarrasses most everyone. Die you commie Pig.

          17. AKLady says

            Childish name calling.

            Not one single fact to support your allegations.
            All you do is whine.

            If your ancestors failed to sufficiently prepare for their retirement, that was the choice they made. The government did not make it for them.

            I am not in the least bit impressed.

            If you dislike America so much, pkease move — the sooner thw better.

            At least we no longer simply allow people to die because thwy cannot afford to buy medical care. The ACA did not entirely cure thw problem, but it is a step in the right direction.

          18. joe says

            that NEVER happened in this country you lying harlot, people NEVER died in the streets due to lack of healthcare THAT IS A FLAT OUT LIE but thanks to bammyrat that will soon begin to happen. You and your lies make me sick bammycare is destroying what we had left as a healthcare system it was a lie from the start it was NEVER INTENDED to work it was created to destroy the health care system then force single payer on to us. How do you ever get any house work done when you spend all your time in here with the big people

          19. jreb57 says

            “If your ancestors failed to sufficiently prepare for their retirement,
            that was the choice they made. The government did not make it for them”
            According to the way you think, it is the government’s job to do this.

            We never have.
            We cannot — the Constitution doea not allow it.
            .
            Why do you think the Electoral College will make Trump President?
            He has zero government experience.
            He has zero knowledge of any law, let alone the Cosntitution.
            He has been found guilty and fined for rental discrimination.
            He is a member of the KKK.

          23. DHConner says

            Any more BS while you’re trying to throttle Trump? So what if he DID do some race discrimination? We all make discriminations everyday: it’s called judgement. What he DID and what he now DOES are quite different.

          24. Mark B says

            And you are making false assertions.

            Progressive commie.

          26. Mark B says

            I’m progressive because going backwards is stupid. Calling me a “commie” is stupid too because I believe in controlled capitalism but then you hate people that are smarter.

          27. TheBlues says

            I hate people like you who want to enslave me. You commie progressive Rat.

            I hate people like you who make stuff up about people you don’t know. Who’d want to “enslave” you?

          29. TheBlues says

            The Libs who are both commies and socialists. Which is worse? The US has medicare and SS. Once these socialist devil programs were in place, nothing on the planet could replace them, less than another World War ! ! ! We are enslaved to them. Did I vote the commie programs in? NO! Did you? That’s why we are enslaved. We have NO choice, except for crooked politicians, to get out of paying for them out of our paychecks every friggin’ month or every 2 weeks for the rest of our lives. We have NO choice. That is enslavement. Comprende??????

          30. Mark B says

            Whine whine stupid whine. We’re stuck with your socialist military too.

            It is not enslavement it is good social policy – unlike your every man for himself garbage that throws the injured, sick, poor and unemployable to death row.

          31. TheBlues says

            It’s enslavement, you poor ignorant liberal Fool. If I don’t want SS, there is NOTHING I can do about it. We have NO choice, you Fool.

          32. Mark B says

            Right – driving on socialist roads is “enslavement” – you are nuts.

          33. Clay Fitzgerald says

            Your ignorance is really showing, about half of those places you listed are part of other nations and not nations unto themselves. Guernsey, Jersey, the Isle of Man, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are all parts of one nation… Great Britain. So what’s your point? If you can’t get simple geography correct, how do you expect anyone to take you seriously?

          34. DHConner says

            They all have their own ruling bodies, but do claim to be part of Great Britain, which includes England, the whole being the sum of it’s parts. Only Cornwall is politically and governmentally part of England, though it has many who would that it were independent,

          35. AKLady2015 says

            Oh, and Clay Fitzgerald, even though you were deleteds, I’ll answer.
            Great Britian is an island in the Atlantic Ocean.
            Great Britian, Guernsey, Jersey, the Isle of Man, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are part of the United Kingdom.

          36. Clay Fitzgerald says

            You’ve just demonstrated your abject ignorance again. I stand corrected on one point only… Northern Ireland isn’t considered part of Great Britain, all of those other places are.
            BTW, I wasn’t “deleteds” as you put it, I’m still here to hold your feet to the fire, hoping that the half dozen or so gray cells you call a brain will thaw out.

            WOW chuckles I would think from the post I just put up you would be able to understand sarcasm “Jesus sent me a text” really you think Jesus has a cell phone and he talks to me ha ha ha ha you are quite the dullard

            Communism is the goal of socialism according to Vladimir Lenin.
            “Christ provided free medical care” Today, he would be jailed for practicing medicine without a license. Today’s medical profession is no match for what Jesus did license or not. Most people would be happy to just have a decent job.

          45. jreb57 says

            According to Vladimir Lenin, the goal of socialism is communism. The commonality is control. The difference is in degree of control.

          46. Clay Fitzgerald says

            Jesus was NOT practicing medicine. He was performing miracles. But then again, I don’t expect a liberal, secular-progressive half-wit to understand that Christ wasn’t a person in the same sense that other people are. The Lord, Jesus Christ, when he appeared on Earth, was the incarnation of God.

How long he will be there is up to the people who send their kids to be brainwashed be him and his radical wife.

      2. James Maxwell says

        No one denies Education is the key to better earnings, but you can get the same
        results by going to trade schools and learning a trade such as Welding, Pluming,
        Mechanical, Carpenter and other skills that are needed to build our Nation and raise the living. I have a friend who apprenticed under a Cobbler and learned to make fine leather
        goods and shoes from scratch. He now make over $100,000 a year on custom leather
        work for those that can afford them. His education level is 1 year of College.

        1. AKLady says

          Bad news for you — trade school is a form of “learning”.

          1. James Maxwell says

            I think I did say “Learning” most trade schools do not bother with some of
            the useless classes as they do in colleges or universities though. The teach
            you a useful skill that will let you go out and earn a good living for yourself
            and your family by either working for yourself or someone else and then yourself
            later on.

          2. AKLady says

            Courses are selected by the student.
            Knowledge of art and history are essentialy if one is to continue living in ans elightened, free society.

          3. Deborah G says

            Real History not the rewritten history of the liberal left that says Muslims were part of the nations beginnings. Other than their Barbary Coast criminality they had zero to do with our founding

          4. AKLady says

            You arw embarassing America with your ignorance and bigotry..

            Increase your education by earning the contribution to our Nation’s history which was made vy each of these men: Crispus Attucs, Yarrow Mamout, Estevanico, Norsereddin, “Hi Jolly”, Abdulrahman Ibrahim Ibn Sori, Ayuba Suleiman Diallo, Omar Ibn Said …

            When you have completed that part of America history, research which countey has been the longest ally of America, and then tell us what the majority religious faith is in that country.

            Oh, and child. what religion do you think the majority of slaves belpnged to?

          5. Deborah G says

            Tribal worship of gods. They weren’t Muslim simply because they hailed from Africa. They were not the educated they were the slow ones that black slavers caught, bought exchanged in markets on the coast of Africa.. Most of their religion was a type of tribal culture. Simply because the slavers boarded many in Moracco [yes I know who is our ally in Africa back then] does not in any way prove they were Msulim. You get educated. OH I forgot you didn’t mention calling me a liar or your usual scripted dialog ahahaha You could not be an ounce more irrelevant or pathetic. YAWN> in fact you have even ceased to be boring you are now inconsequential.

          6. AKLady says

            Morocco has been our ally for 225 years — not just “back then”.
            .
            History documents that Islam was, in fact, the primary religion in the area of Africa where the majority of slaves were captured.

          7. Deborah G says

            These were not Muslims check the facts these were tribesmen/women.The slaves brought a Voodoo type of religion. Comparative religion 101

          8. nKhosi says

            Ancestor worship was/is the most common. I was a missionary in Africa and still have friends all over the continent.

          9. Deborah G says

            Exactly much like our native Americans. They have a close relationship with their surroundings and past. .Libs fall all over themselves to give some kind of unwarranted credibility to Muslims. as influential in our early days but it just ain’t so Joe.

          10. G.Mann says

            The vast majority of slave traders were muslim, that is true.
            As usual.. your post is riddled with 1/2 truths and plain fabrications.
            How is it you’ve survived this long with only your convenient ignorance to support you?

          11. AKLady says

            I write only fact. You do not like those facts, so you call me a liar.

            The majority of slaves from Africa practiced either Islam or Obeah. If caught doing so in the US, they were put to death. Africa has the highest population percentage adhering to Islam.

          12. nKhosi says

            Not- Indonesia has that honor?

          13. joe says

            you have never posted any facts I have seen, I see you cut and past a lot of things you do not understand but that does not make them facts. How about you share some of your favorite recipies with us sweety

          14. nKhosi says

            At the Port’s, yes. But not inland. And not legally out of British Africa earlier than Boer German or Portuguese Africa. The Arab’s are still dealing in slave’s today. Any ‘kafirs’ wîll do, but especially dark-skinned. Morocco was only one of several ports that loaded for the “Middle Passage”

          15. nKhosi says

            Ancestor worship unless they were forced into islamic cultic practice by the people who held/sold them at Dar es Saleem. Many Western, Eastern, and Southern African’s were captured and sold by other African’s. Shaka would punish a village by killing the chief by impaling him and his council; the warriors that did not die fighting and then take the women and children North to the Arab’s to Kunta Kenta is a work of fiction..

          16. joe says

            Hey did you recently have a stroke I am seeing more and more mistakes in your posts. It would also explain your lack of a grasp on reality

          17. jreb57 says

            Well the majority of slave TRADERS were Muslim. It was they who sold the people taken prisoner in tribal African conflicts to English traders on the gold coast

          18. James Maxwell says

            Liberal arts while an interesting area of study will not put food on the table
            nor get you a job in the Real World. You must have skill that are employable
            to be employed and provide for your family needs. Students were ill advised by
            their counselors if they were given the impression that these are useful in
            finding a job upon graduation. A degree in Liberal arts and even history are
            exciting if you are able to pursue those areas but the vast majority of those with
            that type of degree are left by the wayside an still live at home wondering if the
            local burger king is hiring flippers.

          19. joe says

            a degree in liberal arts is a total and complete waste of mommy and daddys money and nothing but an excuse for the kid to be a waste of oxygen for a few years only to come out and live in mommy and daddys basement for the next 20 years palying video games and eating cheese doodles by the case

          20. AKLady says

            Anthropology, communication, English, history, language and linguistics, philosophy, political science, math, psychology and sociology are all “Liberal Arts” degrees.

            Why don’t you tell us how unemployable individuals with degrees in Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures are in the crrent world status?

          21. James Maxwell says

            At best there is a finite numb of jobs in middle eastern languages unless you are a government employee and some companies that deal with those countries. Political Science is a useless degree unless you are a professional politician for
            the most part. We have all see the results of Psychology and Sociology as
            performed by the Democrat Socialist and their attempt to sway and destroy
            the morals and values of a nation. They have corrupted the morals and values
            of the youth our or nation and deluded them to think that Socialism is the answer
            to the problems of the world. Last time I looked Math was an applied Science
            and beneficial in ever day life but to many it only applies to knowing how to
            make change. English History is a good subject to study but unless you are
            in academia employment you will find little use for it in the work place as
            with many others you list. You list while interesting is swayed primarily
            towards the Democrat Socialist addenda it appears. While in good economic
            times these degrees might help them find work in today’s world they need
            to have marketable skills that will provide for them future. We need workers
            who will work and produce to build our Nation not sit back and whine about
            not being able to find a “Fair” job.

          James Maxwell……You are so right, my friend! Trade schools eliminate all the political brainwashing bullshit, cost less and take less time. One emerges with a trade that is useful, remunerative and free of politically correct nonsense! (and a blessedly clear mind)

      3. Tired... says

        There is some truth in that, but the trades also offer good paying jobs that bypass college, as do some business start-ups. This is an issue that can be addressed from several different sides while achieving the goal of helping both the economy and people who need jobs.

        1. cvxxx says

          A person will need a lot better education than most schools provide. College education should sharpen mental skills as most work will be mental. The issue with a pure vocational education is not being able to shift through all the misinformation of the media.
          By now we should be very skeptical of the media news which is not always truthful and that we need to become very sophisticated in digging the behind the scenes issues.

          Times have changed Many older people have problems with the speed of life and the mass of information. Younger people are conditioned to 30 sec video spots with no context. No wonder it is a mess. The internet is wonderful with patience one can find out a lot of information and educated oneself.

          1. Tired... says

            Critical thinking is vital and, while education can help develop those skills, they can also be honed without higher education as well. What it requires is a bit of skepticism, an open mind, and humility.

          2. jreb57 says

            Education should continue after graduation using critical thinking and the resources of coworkers. In other words, pick people’s brains…you may learn something useful.

          3. cvxxx says

            I agree. However,in today’s America,it is no longer as easy. A lot of people with sincere intentions cast land mines under the feet of many good people. From a friend I found out that many employers won’t accept GED’s. There is a disconnect between the people and the power structure. Not everybody is ready for college at 17-18. The US is one of the very few countries where one can get a vocational skill and then go back to college to gain other skills.
            For myself I deplore exit exams for high schools. I was one of those people who was terrified of exams. If i was relaxed I did well but usually i was so wound up that i might as well been in a mental straight jacket.
            Yes, kids today need a much greater breadth of education than grandfather did. Back in 1960 a person could live well on $30000.00 per year. Today to live as well they need $300,000.00!! Retirement? The banks and the politicians touted 401k’s and other non guaranteed instruments of financial wealth building. A pension for the employer? Only if you are an exec.

          4. Tired... says

            Fair enough.

          5. jreb57 says

            I used to work for a media company as an engineer. It is not so much what they do tell you as what they leave out. These days, they don’t seem to care whether their customers realize the difference between “news” and “opinion”.

        2. Deborah G says

          In order to get a good education you have to by pass Liberal Arts colleges and get into Sciences Business,engineering, Medicine ANYTHING else so that these f-ing liberal morons can indoctrinate your kids with.

          1. Tired... says

            I understand your point, but the lack of critical thinking (indoctrination) occurs in every field, although I agree that it is more difficult to do in the hard sciences. Unfortunately requirements such as those listed above may transcend academic fields.

          2. jreb57 says

            Before you can think critically, some critical knowledge is necessary. Knowledge is tempered with experience.

          It is not in any dictionary.

      5. Conservative says

        The next step will be more Affirmation Action to employ incompetent graduates. The only requirement will be how ‘politically correct’ one is. Seems we have a bunch of very low I.Q. people running the Country and the Universities. This foolishness will end but the lives of so many will be destroyed by them. The liberals are hell-bent on creating generations who consider themselves ‘victims’. When one thinks of themselves as a victim they will always be victims and the only winners are the liberal politician who have kept generation on the government ‘plantations’ feeling incapable if ever making good lives for themselves or their children. This has been very planned out by the former KKKs in Congress and Lyndon Johnson who stated “We’ll give those niggers so much they will be voting for us for the next 200 years. Sadly, too many blacks have been so uneducated they cannot see how stuck in the ‘briar bush’ they think it is comfortable and don’t even try to free themselves.

        1. AKLady says

          American ignorance and bigotry, published for the world to witness.

      6. ShemSilber says

        There are any number of “educated fools” who have degrees after their names, because they have left the Amighty Creator out of their glossary of terms to be believed. As Psalm 111:10 says, the beginning of wisdom is the fear of Yahuwah, and a good understanding have those who do His commandments. Paul also tells us in Romans 1 that they make mindless fools of themselves by excluding Yahuwah from their “education.”

        That will all be corrected in the coming Kingdom, when the Master Yahushua shall once more descend from the heavens, this time to rule the earth in righteousness. All evils will be removed, and those who have clamored and hammered for “diversity” for sexual perverts will either be cleaned up or gone. We will finally have a world at peace and without the evil one’s bullies to muddy the waters.

        HalleluYAH and omein!

      7. G.Mann says

        Education does not equate to having a “Degree”.

        Employers hire people with skills who are willing to apply those skills to production of that employers product.

        Universities only “Produce Degrees”.. they do not “Teach Skills for the Working World”.

        As a business owner, I routinely have applications across my desk from people with “Degrees” that are full of mistakes in grammar and logic, often, outright lies. Routinely, I mark them with a red pencil and hand them back with a critique. That directly equates to “Education” in the hard business world and it costs me much less than firing them after 60 days or less.

        Frankly, such applications from someone who holds a “College Degree” is an embarrassment on society and a statement on the University that awarded that “Degree”.

        One of the largest segments of unemployed in “eligible work force” today is college graduates. They have no marketable skills, they have high and un-realistic expectations, and they have huge student loan debt.. They got screwed..

        1. AKLady says

          The majority of American jobs now require college degrees.
          Many of those jobs require licenses.
          College degrees are required for the license.

          Since you claim book learning is not needed for the employment you offer, why do you discriminate? You need to be careful, you may find yourself sued by the DOJ. Discrimination against the handicapped is illegal. People handicapped by Dyslexia cannot spell. Look real careful at those applications — be especially alert for b-d and p-q errors.

          Oh, and poorly informed person, these highly respected professionals could not spell: Benjamin Franklin, Alfred Mosher Butts,William Faulkner, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, John Keats, John Irving, Jane Austen, Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill ,John F. Kennedy Jr…

          1. James Maxwell says

            The vast number of degrees issued by universities do not equate to a usable
            job skill in the real world. There is a good reason so many of the youth of
            today are still home and not working or producing income to pay their own
            way in the world. We have had some highly educated people as you mentioned,
            great writers, poets, musicians and many other but they all had skills that allowed
            them to achieve fame and fortunate and acknowledgement by the masses
            of people. But they are few and far between when you look at the population of
            Nations. And I forgot to mention some of the EX-Slaves who came forth to bring
            notable inventions to our Nation and improve all of our lives. Intelligent people,
            given the opportunity will rise to the top as long as we can put racism and bigotry aside to acknowledge their talent and appreciate it. As Dr Martin Luther
            King said “Judge a person by the content of their heart and not the color of
            their skin”, that also applies to the skill set the bring to the work force.

            Keep buying those foreign made goods.

            The situation will only get worse.

            America now has what is a service economy.
            .
            The youth of today that are still at home, are there because their parents have failed to teach then respnsibility.

            The youth of today that are still at home, are there because their parents alliow then to be.

            Many of today’s youth are just plain lazy.
            They feel the world owes them a living.

            I see from your response that you can spell, but can not read and comprehend.
            In my business you must demonstrate you do both with absolute clarity.

            But then writing legal briefs which will be read by members of the United States Supreme Court might be to big of a challenge for you.

            Do not bother to respond, I will not bother to review anything you write, having determined it is always without value.

            Insults do not change facts.

            As for legal briefs, I have written more than a few.

            My cases are cited at agency hearings and court cases in no less than five states.
            I changed Alaska Workers’ Compensation Law. Those cases are also cited in law text books and in law school classrooms. I am not an attorney admitted to the Bar.

            You seem to be behind the times … by at least 10 years.

            In today’s world, plumbing requires two years of college and a 4 to 5 year apprenticeship. Same requirements for HIVAC, electrical … well, to be licensed and work legally.

        Technically, “We the people did not allow it directly. The government (IRS) raised business taxes so high that most of them had no choice. Find a cheaper tax climate or go under. Hopefully if Trump is elected, he will have a more favorable solution, since he does know how to run a business which these politicians don’t seem to be able to do.No matter how anyone feels about it, running this country is like running a business. We produce a product. We market it and negotiate for the best deal we can get. We pay wages and buy raw materials, we try to show a profit for our stockholders, and pay our debts, and save enough money to re-invest in the company to develop new products, and find new customers. It is the way capitalism has always worked. If everyone is willing to do his or her part, there is plenty for everyone. But when one department gets greedy and starts charging more it throws everything off balance. Then to keep going, you must borrow money, which means paying interest, thus it is harder to pay your debts. Then that department says “we are not making enough money to pay our debts, so we are going to lay off some people that will save money. All this time the company has been paying into unemployment agency. That agency must pay wages to laid off workers, which leaves them with less money, so they must raise the unemployment insurance rates, which means the employer must charge more for his product and the more money he makes the more the IRS takes from him on a business level, but also on his personal taxes. So we really need a businessman in the W.H.to get it straightened out.

        1. AKLady says

          Another one who is well-brainwashed.
          Don’t you people ever check actual facts?

          Federal income tax on business were almost double what they are now during WW II and through the Korean War. The rates are published by the IRS. Educate yourself/

          Tax on businesses is lower in the U.S. than in many countries. That data is also available on the Internet.

          In some parts of China, it is as high as 60%. Chinese workers live in barracks. They work 12 to 18 hours a day. They are paid minimal wages. Simply put, it is no different than slavery. The only benefit those workers get are two small meals a day. If they become injured or sick, they are kicked to the street.

          Your entire post is false.

          1. Joyce White says

            AKLady, I did try to check. Please tell me where you got your information on Corporate taxes in WWll and Korea. Found plenty on personal tax, but not much on corporate. Corporate tax in U.S. is at 39%. the third highest in the world. The Arab Emirates pay 55% and Chad pays 40%. Having run a manufacturing corporation for 6 years, I can tell you that excessive taxes slows down production , employment and future product development. If stockholders don’t get a fair return on their investment, they dump your stock.

          2. Joyce White says

            AKLady, checked them out. They are all about individual income tax. I haven’t been able to find anything which gives actual numbers on Corporate tax. Companies like Ford Motors etc. earn a whole lot more than $200,000. per yr.I am going to keep looking for it though.

            See what I mean Joyce???

          4. AKLady says

            What is the highest income tax rate in US history?

            In 1944-45, “the most progressive tax years in U.S. history,” the 94% rate applied to any income above $200,000 ($2.4 million in 2009 dollars, given inflation). In World War Two, tax law revisions increased the numbers of “those paying some income taxes” from 7% of the U.S. population (1940) to 64% by 1944.

          5. Joyce White says

            AKLady, Those figures are all about personal income taxes, not Corporate. Businesses pay a tax on their income, and the owner of the business pays taxes on his personal income So essentially, he is taxed twice.

          6. AKLady says

            Try these:

      9. Clay Fitzgerald says

        There are lots of good paying jobs that have not and cannot be shipped overseas, auto mechanics, plumbers, and electricians to name three. None of those require college in order to be qualified though they do require training, but that can be accomplished without the sort of liberal indoctrination and brainwashing that takes place at many if not most of the nations colleges and universities.

        1. AKLady says

          Plumbers and electricians must serve lengthy apprenticeships. They are union controlled. Carpentry is also still a union controlled trade in America.

          Auto mechanics is no longer a trade school gig, well not the positions with excellent pay. The good paying mechanic jobs are manufacturer trained. Entry into those programs require a highschool deploma. Competition for slots in the programs is stiff.

          1. Clay Fitzgerald says

            So? Those sound like a lot of piddly ass excuses, but none of those trades require a college degree. And your comment about competiveness for slots is hardly any different then many who competitively apply for highly sought after slots in many college and university programs. So what’s your point anyway, if you even have one?

          2. AKLady says

            Why do you think that years of apprenticeship to become journeyman is any different than attaining a college degree?

            Both are “diplomas” which require years of study and training.

            Training is training.

            This world cannot function without college trained individuals.

          3. Clay Fitzgerald says

            Well, I see you’ve never worked in the trades since you are so ignorant about the difference between college/university and training programs for the trades. You must relish reveling in your ignorance.

          4. AKLady says

            Suggest you increase your reading conprehension.

            You also need to stop assuming things. You relish those assumption, making a fool of yourself before the world.

            Training is training — classroom, farm field, construction site — it is still a training process. One must pass exams to graduate. One gets a diploma, license …

            Oh, and in this day and age, even plumbing requires classroom learning. Plumbing is now a technology, not simply a trade. The trade now requires extensive mathematics, hydronics, pressure …specialty tools.

            Oh, dear — that means attending one of those awful dreaded colleges ….

          5. Clay Fitzgerald says

            By your moronic comment I see you have no clue.
            I, on the other hand, worked in construction engineering for 32 years, the vast majority of that time was spent as a construction rep. I was college educated, even taking post grad courses at some of the top notch engineering institutions in the country, however I had to work very closely with nearly all of the different trades-persons that it took to raise a commercial type and specialized types structures. As a part of my duties, I had to know the qualifications and compensation of those carrying out those tasks, from concrete, structural steel erecting, plumbing, mechanical, electrical/lighting, electronics, roofing, etc. I know more about it than you can ever possibly realize and you’re the one making a fool of yourself with your ignorant and stupid comments. BTW. plumbers still don’t have to go to college and get a degree in order to practice their trade. Get an f’ing clue!

        2. Mark B says

          Clearly you have no clue as to what is taught in a university and just make shi* up.

            I see you’re playing the village idiot today and are following me around in order to get some little, meaningless and stupid digs in. It appears that you’ve been subject to the type of liberal, secular-progressive indoctrination and brainwashing I referred to in my comment to that other stupid idiot, AKLady (but she’s no lady).

          2. Mark B says

            No – just confirming that you really do know nothing and are just parroting right wing BS.

            Drop dead, you liberal meathead.

          4. Mark B says

            Quintessential right wing response. Brain dead as they come – parroting nonsense.

          5. Clay Fitzgerald says

            No, that was NOT nonsense. I only speak the truth, it is the brain dead liberal meatheads, such as yourself that puke the liberal mantra, the rhetorical lies and deception of the liberal, secular-progressive dogma.

          6. Mark B says

            You are an ignorant conspiracy theorist right wing twerp that knows nothing about what happens in universities – just jealous that people get an education. Facts have a liberal bias.

          7. Clay Fitzgerald says

            Why do you left wing loons come to conservative website forums and start flinging garbage? What conspiracy theory are you referring to. I haven’t said anything about any conspiracy of any sort. How far do did you have to reach up your anus to come with this idiotic comment, huh, Marky Maypo? And where did you pull “Facts have a liberal bias” crap from? Must be the same place, moron!

          8. Mark B says

            Because your stupid websites contain lying garbage.
            Sorry that you are so dumb – spend too much time reading right wing nonsense instead of science and world news.

            The true liars are the loony left, you’re the epitome of that!

          10. Mark B says

            No – we don’t need to lie like the Right who have to protect their silly religious fiction. Mormons, RC’s, Evangelicals, Methodists, 7th Day Adventists and hundreds more say you cannot even keep the lies straight. What a joke.

          11. Clay Fitzgerald says

            The very basis of the liberal, secular-progressive movement is based on lies. You’re the epitome of the lying sort dregs of humanity that foster those lies.

          12. Mark B says

            And you are a raving right wing nutter that has no clue. Can you pray to your magic god to make me go away?

          13. Clay Fitzgerald says

            “Raving, right wing nutter.” So that’s the best you can do? BWAHAHAHAHAHA! HEEHEEHEEHEEHEEHEE! ROTHLMAO! You’re living proof that the left is no more than semi-literate and suffering from an acute psychotic condition known as Liberal Derangement Syndrome, Marky Maypo! Snicker, snicker.

          14. Mark B says

            Must suck to be as misguided as you.

          15. Clay Fitzgerald says

            For one who is so hopelessly lost as you are, Marky Maypo, that’s pretty, freaking hilarious! BTW, in this forum… it’s you who sucks… the big one!

          16. Mark B says

            Cannot take criticism can you, so all you do is try to demean. Must suck to be so ignorant of reality.

          17. Clay Fitzgerald says

            I have to admit that I am ignorant… of YOUR reality, which is that of a 6 year old. As far as being demeaning, go back and read your first comment to me; “Clearly you have no clue as to what is taught in a university and just make shi* up.” You started off that way, I am just giving you the same consideration.

          18. Mark B says

            And you have shown no indication of knowing how universities work and what they teach in any realistic and informed way.

          19. Clay Fitzgerald says

            You’re right about one thing, I have not given any indication of that, however, I do know a lot about how colleges and universities work because I’ve attended several different such institutions around the country, both academic and technical, including the Washington State college/university system, University of California system, a college in Florida, an academy in Oklahoma, among others. One thing I did learn in particular is that they aren’t all part of one big monolithic culture, but the good ones adhere to rigorous academic discipline and the less than stellar ones kowtow to the politically correct subculture that is coming to dominate an alarming number of institutions of higher learning that is having a deleterious affect on academics.

          20. Mark B says

            Well that is a load of waffle that doesn’t indicate that you know squat about what actually gets taught.

          21. Clay Fitzgerald says

            How can you expect anyone take such a moronic comment seriously? You think I enrolled just to give them money? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! ROTFLMAO! There’s only one word to accurately describe you, Marky Maypo, STUPID!

          22. Mark B says

            Apparently you aren’t able to give examples to support your crackpot thesis – so yes you did waste your money.

          23. Clay Fitzgerald says

            What crackpot thesis might that be? That the left is psychotic? Well, Marky, you’re living (if you’re actually alive that is) of that. Since you’re the proof, it’s obviously more than a thesis, it’s a scientific fact.

          24. Mark B says

            The left mostly doesn’t believe in a stupid psychotic god.

          Asian goods are the problem, not Canadian or Mexican products.

          NAFTA has markedly reduced the number of illegals crossing from Mexico.

          Yes, I know that statement does not agree with the political sewer spew, truth rarely enters politics.

          Congress makes the laws.

      11. jreb57 says

        “We the People allowed other paying employment to be shiipped off to Asia, India, etc”
        That is certainly true. Now the question becomes how to bring the jobs back without starting a trade war. It will not be an easy or quick process, but it needs to be done.

        1. AKLady says

          Buy Amwrican, and only American goods.
          It will be a bit more expensive until the volume is turned around, but well worth it in jobs for the American people.
          However, it will only achieve the goal if the majority of America’s people take that action.

          1. jreb57 says

            I buy American whenever it is an option.

          2. AKLady2015 says

            It is almost always an option.
            Sometimes one must search.
            At times it will be more expensive.
            The Law of Supply and Demand will apply.
            America needs to wake up.
            We even buy weapons of war from other countries.

        2. AKLady says

          Government action would start a trade qar.
          If people simply stop buying the products, supply and demand takes its normal course.

      12. cal3301 says

        There are many jobs out there that do not require a higher education to make more than minimum wage. There are factory, carpentry, landscapers, and various types of road work jobs that don’t even need a high school education that pay over $20.00 an hour. There are trade jobs that can be learned in Votech schools for those who don’t like regular school. My sister learned computer programming in the afternoon while going to regular high school in the morning. There are on the job training and apprenticeships in various fields that they can end up making over $60.00 an hour. My brother is a master carpenter and can get over $160.00 just on a single consultation. The problem with a lot of the kids nowadays is the fact they don’t like to work or get their hands dirty. That lack of work ethic falls on the parents, who are too busy working and giving the children want they want instead of making them work for it

        I just know this will make you soooooo happy to know America is being overtaken by sharia law:

        S. Muslims and Trump

        Most people are not aware of the facts stated below, therefore I am sharing this with all of you.

        Here is something to think about, and why so many Americans support Donald Trump !!

        (This information has all been checked, then double checked… it is 100% Correct.)

        That’s why there is such an alarm within US government, since Trump’s statement about temporary suspension of migration of Muslims to US till US authorities make sure there is a proper concept of safe penetration of US territory.

        People are stunned to learn that the head of the U.S. CIA is a Muslim!

        Do hope this wakes up some!

        You mean until it hits you like a ton of bricks read it again, until you understand!

        We now have a Muslim government.

        John Brennan, current head of the CIA converted to Islam while stationed in Saudi Arabia.

        Obama’s top adviser, Valerie Jarrett, is a Muslim who was born in Iran where her parents still live.

        Hillary Clinton’s top adviser, Huma Abedin is a Muslim, whose mother and brother are involved in the now outlawed Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

        Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for Homeland Security, Arif Aikhan, is a Muslim.

        Homeland Security Adviser, Mohammed Elibiary, is a Muslim.

        Obama adviser and founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Salam al-Marayati, is a Muslim.

        Obama’s Sharia Czar, Imam Mohamed Magid, of the Islamic Society of North America is a Muslim..

        Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships, Eboo Patel, is a Muslim.

        1/13/15:?? Nancy Pelosi announced she will appoint Rep Andre Carson, D-Ind, as the first Muslim lawmaker on the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. It would make Carson the first Muslim to serve on the committee that receives intelligence on the threat of Islamic militants in the Middle East! He has suggested

        that U.S. schools should be modeled after Islamic madrassas, where education is based on the Quran!!!

        And last but not least, our closet Muslim himself, Barack Hussein Obama.

        It’s questionable if Obama ever officially took the oath of office when he was sworn in. He didn’t repeat the oath properly to defend our Nation and our Constitution. Later the Democrats claimed he was given the oath again in private.

        CIA director John Brennan took his oath on a copy of the Constitution, not a Bible..??

        Valarie Jarret wrote her college thesis on how she wanted to change America into a Muslim friendly nation and she is a Obama top advisor.

        Congressman, Keith Ellison took his oath on a copy of the Qur’an.

        Congresswoman Michele Bachman was vilified and verbally tarred and feathered by Democrats when she voiced her concern about Muslims taking over our government.

        Considering all these appointments, it would explain why Obama and his minions are systematically destroying our nation, supporting radical Muslim groups worldwide, opening our southern border, and turning a blind eye to the genocide being perpetrated on Christians all over Africa and the Middle East.

        The more damage Obama does, the more arrogant he’s become!

        Our nation and our government has been infiltrated by people who want to destroy us. It can only get worse!

        If you fail to pass this one on, there’s something wrong.. Somewhere!

        In his book he said, “if it comes down to it, I would side with the Muslims”. (And still, some insist he isn’t Muslim!)

        Common sense doesn’t grow in everyone’s garden.

        Parents really need to find out what their children’s college is teaching and tell them they have to transfer to another. Contact their alumni and let them know, some might not want to donate anymore.

          Unfortunately so many of these students were raised by single, uneducated mothers who had these children while they were teens and they have the same attitude. Even the grandparents came from the ‘free love’ movement.

          1. jaybird says

            How could they afford to go to college if what you say is true?

          2. glenn398 says

            You need to look at how much free education is given away, especially if you are a minority, and there seems to be no limit. I have taught and train in several of these free projects for minorities and that started back in 1965.

            Poor thing. I think your computer keyboard is broken – it repeats letters and doesn’t capitalize properly.

        3. Mark B says

          The parents are too dumb to know what reality is.

          1. jaybird says

            I would not pay for something if I didn’t approve of what their courses consisted of and would want to know what else there professor is expressing.

          2. Mark B says

            Cannot trust your own children – sounds like you are a true helicopter parent.

          3. jaybird says

            Children will sometimes pick dumb stuff. You assume a lot about a person. I am a great-grandmother and when my children grew up there was no such a thing as a helicopter parent. My children (53 & 43) did not go to college but got great jobs, never got into trouble and never came back home to live. My grandchildren (3) boy(electrical), 2 girls – x-ray tech & dental hygienist (researched high paying jobs and demand) all are successful.

          4. glenn398 says

            Jaybird in the eyes of Mark B you, your children and grandchildren are losers.

          5. jaybird says

            Their father and I were also divorced when our son and daughter were 15 and 10 yrs old. The boy lived with him and the girl lived with me. I worked and kept up with my son even though he did not live with me.

      2. Mark B says

        Your response is childishly stupid.

        1. Clay Fitzgerald says

          The only one posting childish and stupid comments in this forum is you, Marky Maypo!

          1. Mark B says

            And calling somebody “Marky Maypo” is adult? Right.

          2. Clay Fitzgerald says

            It is meant to be derisive because the only thing you stir up in anyone else is simple derision, Marky Maypo!

          3. Mark B says

            Yes because right wing clowns have nothing else. Their knowledge base is empty.

        2. glenn398 says

          Would say you seem to be one of those that has lived off the back of the tax payers all your life or you would have a much different attitude.

          1. Mark B says

            No – I’ve never been in the military living off the backs of tax payers.

          2. glenn398 says

            Didn’t say anything about the military, having trouble reading?

          3. Mark B says

            You talked about people who lived off the back of the taxpayers. The biggest cost of people living off my back is the military.

          4. glenn398 says

            If we didn’t have a military what would there be to protect this country. If the U.S. hadn’t had such a strong military then Japan and Germany would have easily won WW2 and you know what they thought of other races. So spout all you want, you or your relatives would no longer exist.

          5. Mark B says

            It didn’t have a strong military at the beginning of WW2. It didn’t want to stop Hitler from invading other countries. It still consists of people living off the backs of taxpayers.

          6. glenn398 says

            Strong enough the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and we had a very strong manufacturing base that was quickly turned into producing war materials like almost overnight. Like I said if it weren’t for the U.S strong military most of you people would not exist today.

          7. Mark B says

            Well aren’t we special. What a big head you have – jerk.

          8. glenn398 says

            Why don’t you crawl back under the rock you came out from. Never said we were special said we built a great country and we did, yes the white man did, guess that one really will hurt your feelings.

          9. Mark B says

            Yes – stole it from the Native Americans and killed most of them.

          10. glenn398 says

            Well if we didn’t guess Hitler would have sent them all to the happy hunting ground. So who do you think the Native Americans stole it from, maybe the cave man. Your other problem is the Native Americans never got along with each other either and killed others from different tribes so just which one of those different tribes did we steal it from? Aside from that the weak always loose.

          11. hiphop says

            It is not the military living off the backs of taxpayers. It is the illegal aliens and all the refugees being brought into this country that are living off the taxpayers. Free healthcare, free subsidies for housing, food, clothing, etc.

          12. Mark B says

            Then whose backs do the military live off?

          13. hiphop says

            People in the military pay their fair share and them some. They put their lives on the line for this country and illegal aliens get more benefits than they do. There are a lot of homeless military, their not living off the taxpayers. You getting free healthcare, free subsidies for housing, food , clothing, etc well neither are the military.

          14. Mark B says

            Only a few put their lives at risk and many are in because they couldn’t get real jobs. I don’t get free healthcare. The military pay $400 or $500 a year while I was paying $1400 a MONTH.

          15. hiphop says

            All of them risk their lives at one time or another especially those sent to the Middle East. Base pay for 2 yrs is $22,420 with a housing allowance of $3405.02. I hardly think that their pay $25,825 a year makes for a great living. Some suffer for the rest of their lives from what they have had to endure and they cannot even count on the VA helping them when they need it most. I pay alot for insurance also because of Obamacare, which is going to continue to go up every year to pay for all those people who don’t pay a penny.

          16. Mark B says

            This is a free country – you can become Bill Gates if you want. They CHOSE to join.

          17. hiphop says

            We have a volunteer military and I am glad we get people to join which is far better then the military reinstating the draft. Maybe they should reinstate the draft and require all of the young people to participate in 2 to 4 years of their BS. So I would say your the kind that would not think of putting your life on the line but want to bitch about them getting $500. a year healthcare. You really are ridiculous.

          18. Mark B says

            I’ll put my life on the line when that is the most effective use of my knowledge and experience. They didn’t put radar and nuclear engineers on the front line in WW2.

          19. hiphop says

            That explains it, your and educated jerk with a big ego but no common sense. I’m college educated to but I don’t feel that I am better than anyone else.

          20. Mark B says

            But you just called me a jerk – hypocrite.

          21. glenn398 says

            Mark there was nothing stopping you from joining the military if you thought they had it so good, what was stopping you. I know they wanted a whole body, not just a big mouth.

          22. Mark B says

            They wanted cannon fodder that couldn’t think for themselves or be creative. Had to do what you were told to do not what made sense or was creative. I do productive creative work – not destructive.

          23. glenn398 says

            Make any excuse you want but it is just an excuse because the military has a lot of technical duties, not all are ground troops.

          24. Mark B says

            Oh right. Learning how to blow things up. I do CREATIVE THINGS that make life BETTER for people. Constructive things.

          25. glenn398 says

            Goes to show you don’t have a clue as to what the military is all about and most operations have nothing to do with blowing things up. Like I said if the U.S. hadn’t defeated Germany and Japan you wouldn’t even exist today.

          26. Mark B says

            Right like the military swam and walked there and beat them up with their hands. You’re as ignorant as fuc*. Who the he** do you think designed and built the aircraft, guns, engines, radar and all the other things they used? If you had read a fraction of the books I have on aircraft and engine design you would freaking know it WASN’T the cannon fodder. The last time the Air Force even tried to specify a training aircraft they got it wrong and had to chop them all up for scrap.

          27. glenn398 says

            Who do you think protects your sorry ass from being alienated, too bad we can’t put people like you in an area unprotected by any military. Training aircraft for the air force, don’t know what you are talking about but then you just like to flap your lips anyway.

          28. Mark B says

            You are one raving idiot. Here is the story.
            http://www.af.mil/News/ArticleDisplay/tabid/223/Article/129834/officials-announce-t-3a-firefly-final-disposition.aspx
            The military couldn’t protect anything without the help of engineers and scientists.

          29. glenn398 says

            Military couldn’t protect anything without the help of engineers and scientists, what a stupid statement of course it take engineers and scientists. On the other hand the air force didn’t design the T-3A Firefly, it was designed in England by a company called Slings. It was used as a trainer to eliminate weak pilots and for some air shows.

          30. Mark B says

            You finally caught on. “of course it take engineers and scientists” – so you wouldn’t freaking send THEM into war – dolt.
            It wasn’t “designed by Slingsby” – it was a Fournier RF-6 that Slingsby manufactured.
            Here is the kicker ” All three instructors killed in the accidents came from the C-141, a
            large-transport aircraft. Their only prior aerobatic experience was in
            Air Force pilot training in the T-37 and T-38 jet trainers. This,
            combined with thinner air at the higher density altitude of the Academy
            airfield and training areas, meant spin recovery was delayed and/or
            improper spin prevent/recovery techniques were used.”
            Suck that up.

          31. glenn398 says

            The only thing I can’t figure out about you is if you are in the 3rd or 4th grade.

          32. Mark B says

            Go back to sleep. Worthless right wing ignoramus.

          33. glenn398 says

            Sorry did I hurt your little feelings, go to mother she will hold and console you.

          34. Mark B says

            Wow – you clowns are so childish. Lose the argument so you revert to playground level insults.

          35. glenn398 says

            Didn’t loose any argument as T-3A was designed and built like I said in England. The Air Force used them to eliminate bad pilots and only then did they go to the T-37 and 38 jets. The T-3A was used more by private pilot training and was not designed by the Air Force. What the Air Force did was put in a stronger engine.

      Here is what is happening in Venezuela. They are devolving into total chaos thanks to their communist dictatorship. You may ask why I am bogging about a foreign entity.

      Better yet, change schools. They need your fees to pay their communist inspired Professors.

      1. jreb57 says

        “communist inspired Professors”

        Like William Ayers who bombed public buildings while you were answering the call of our country. I understand that he teaches school somewhere in Illinois. I would not pay tuition to have one of my children subject to the garbage he has spouted. Thank you for your service VN Veteran. There were many people who did not support the war but admired and respected the people who patriotically answered the call. I think it is atrocious how the Vets were treated.

        1. NavymanBill says

          Ayers teaches at the Univ of Illinois.

          1. jreb57 says

            I wonder how he avoided charges of treason and terrorism. He should not be free today. We lost 58,000 young men in Vietnam.

          2. NavymanBill says

            jreb, it’s MUCH worse than that. Ayers is a cop-killer. Self-admitted. A FACT. He was being held, and the FBI suddenly released him. (He is also the son of a fabulously wealthy man. Most observers think that had a LOT to do with his release.) Google him. And his wife Bernardine Dohrn. They were both revolutionaries.

          3. jreb57 says

            I am quite sure you are right about it being worse than that. Look at the political affiliation of John Kennedy’s assassin and look at the political affiliation of the people who now control the Democrat party.

    Libtards students are concocted at Libtard colleges.

  18. James Maxwell says

    Think it time to call it what it is a Politically motivate indoctrination center for the mush brains that
    go there. We have seen Universities, Colleges and what ever you want to call a place of “Higher”
    learning become Indoctrination centers with Anti American sentiments and a One World Government
    mentality. They are trying to destroy the pride citizens should have in their Nation and the respect
    it deserves for being the Bastion of Freedom that the world desires. The mental giants in the
    Universities are flaming Left Wing Socialist and do not live in the real world and fail to realize that
    Socialist is a failed science and can never work. All the need to do is look at Venezuela to see the
    results of what happens in a pure socialist society. The Nation is bankrupt as is Greece and others
    that have tried the experiment over and over again and again. The perfect definition of S T U P I D

  19. Beeotchstewie says

    they construct elaborate social theories that aim to present the U.S. in an increasingly-oppressive light
    They aint seen nothing yet. Wait and see what Hillary has in store for us or Bernie when Soros ensures yet another fraudulent victory for the Democretins. Then all these stupid liberals will feel what it is like to exist under totalitarion Communist rule. (AKA Socialism) What will the unskilled cry babies do then? Go hide in their wittle safe spaces? This sort of indoctrination is prevalent on almost all college campuses, this is what the indoctrination process via public schools anti-American curriculum is turning out. We are in deep SHIT!

  22. Tiger says

    For those of us who are students of world history we see the writing on the wall. The attaching this indoctrination to the new generations of youth and also to begin this in Public Schools right up the ladder to colleges. We see daily how successful they have been when we read articles like this and we listen to man/woman on the street interviews by reporters or on these campuses. A man/woman is what they read/see and the company they keep. It can’t be denied that controlling the messages at all stages of growth makes the good little Socialist/Communist, who in the end might even turn their parents into the police or to the government for extermination. Sounds far fetched? Look to history.

    This U.S. is in a vice that is squeezing the very Republic and all it stands for out of our children. We had better stop this now and I believe Trump is the answer, for now.

  23. Gerry Costa says

    Why would our young even attend these universities?? Let them sink in their own libtard stupidity or change their way of thinking. The diversity class that I was asked to leave, well actually told to leave, was structured to allow the African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Native Americans( get the idea yet) to whine and cry how mistreated they have been and to humiliate the Caucasians(who they just classified as white). I had a problem with that real quick. All these classes do is divide and anger. This university and the rest who implement such a program should lose their funding — PERIOD.

    We need to do something about this crap, demand no more tax money be send to the colleges. I did will you take a stand? I wrote both to the college, to the state and the federal government demanding no tax money be use for this type of crap but we need many more to take put in this

  26. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

    Massachusetts the state who has given us so many misfits over the years. What next, a fake Native American, another homosexual like Barney Frank or a real genuine hero like paper cuts Kerry? Are there any normal people in that Blue state cesspool?

    Just look at the outcome . Our children are being brainwashed by demorat/ liberal so called teachers. Trump may cut their funds ; Then watch them scream .

  28. kmeyer5063 says

    Many of the things liberals are advocating are simply matters of feeling and there is not reality to it. They don’t even see that inclusiveness and tolerance should certainly include people who feel differently about the issues they care about, otherwise they have the most narrow and exclusive attitudes, void of any tolerance whatever. But, that is too logical and realistic to be accepted by the academia. Tell me again: Why are we supporting them with our tax Dollars and allow them to indoctrinate our children with this hogwash?

  29. Bob Stewart says

    Fine with me. I wouldn’t send my kids to Mass anyway. That is what you’ve come to expect from our liberal/socialist/communist universities and tenured professors. State legislators that get my vote will vote to eliminate tenure.

  30. pysco says

    Social justice ? Cut the pay of professors to the same pay as an average citizens, they are not elite, they are just a bunch of liberals, that will talk about social justice, but will not live under the conditions, they expect us to live. Institutes of higher learning are not about education, they are about money….

    1. DHConner says

      Here in Des Moines, Drake U. had a theological professor who is personal friends with Fidel Castro, and last year retired. He strongly supports Castro and his version of Socialism, yet his personal vehicle is a hi-fi high end model, he live in a home assessed at $320,000 by the Polk County Assessor’s Office, which backs to a bicycle trail and Walnut Creek. Beautiful full sized deck, large shade trees, all very tasteful. Large stone flag patio below, and a very plain front of the house. A “True Believer and Useful Idiot”, he is in a fairly expensive section of Urbandale, a suburb of DM.
      The prototypical left-liberal elitist, he is not about to move down into “Gun City”, an area just north of downtown DM, where shootings are common, drug dealers are on many corners, prostitutes troll the streets, brawls occur, stabbings, beatings, and general mayhem are the rule of the day. There aren’t enough cops in DM (about 330) to control just this one area of about 3 miles square in total area, let alone the Mexicanized near east side where the over-all rate of violence has jumped since OBASTURD opened the flood gates on the Southern US border. Like rats leaving a sinking ship they have poured into Iowa because of a well deserved reputation as kind and caring people. There have been some here since the railroads came in about 1846 or so, mostly railroad workers, watermelon farms (SE IOWA-Keokuk area) and sugar beets (Mason City area). In some towns they ae at 50% of the population, and violence, due to Mexican “machismo” (fueled by alcohol) demands a fight in response to any insult, perceived of real. Iowa is being turned into another 3rd world shithole, and having born here in 1946 and lived here all but 8 years of my 69, it wounds and grieves me much to see this happen to what was once pretty damned close to Heaven, and is now becoming sinkhole of foreign born trash. I still wouldn’t like it even if they came here legally, but most these are visa or student overstays, and border jumpers, or Hb1 overstays. So what work is left for the common man, in that farming is so mechanized 2 or 3 men can operate thousand’s of acres? Not enough industry, and the Mex’s and Guat’s and all the rest get the entry level work, which pushes high school and college kids and the unemployed out of line. I’m retired on $11,000 SS a year and totally physically disabled, due to a badly misspent first 37 years. I screwed it up, and take responsibility for it. But that doesn’t make what the illegal’s do any less wrong. And I don’t see our old buddy DR. THEOLOGY moving into Gun City or the Near East side or any other troubled neighborhood, of which there are more than just the 2 I named. C’mon, Prof !! Put your ass and your money where your mouth is. You ain’t got the guts – “First you, then me” as the saying went in the Soviet Gulags, the prison camps, that marked out on a map looked like an Archipelago. Islands of hell scattered around mostly Siberia. Alexzander Solshenytszen spent years in “The Gulag Archipelago”, which was his Magnus Opus in 3 volumes. The hideous treatment and conditions in which prisoners lived, especially the “zeks” (political prisoners) should make the normal person feel sick to their stomach. And that is what Castro does to his people every day, day in and day out, every day of the year. And we are supposed to think that DR. THEOLOGY has anything to teach anybody ?? When you run with scum, you are scum too. America could end just like that if we don’t our county back on track, having been off the rails and down on the ground for so long, at lest 40 years.

        Excellent post, DH, says a lot about liberals who support socialism. Thank you.

  31. Loving America says

    Armherst needs “Charges Filed Against Them For Forcing The Communist Reign Program Against The Students”! This is not China or Russia and Someone needs to file the charges and arrest them and shut down the School until the Verdict is brought in aginst the Communist Bastards!

    1. kbfallon says

      What they need is the parents who are paying the tuition to say—-NO-I’m not paying for you to go to that shethole.

    2. Clay Fitzgerald says

      I understand and sympathize with your view, however, I’m not aware of any charges that can be filed against anyone here… what crime has been committed, which law has been broken?

  32. Almay says

    This requirement is NOT the purpose of an educational institution!!!! This corrupt school should be shut down immediately and the doors closed with all of the commie profs fired. This requirement is disrespect for the human personality attempting to make everyone look and act the same which is a disaster to any person, state and nation.

  33. David in MA says

    “” The university insists that none of this comes with a political agenda, an argument that some on the faculty find absurd. ”
    No political agenda?
    This is a communist step if there ever were one!

  34. ConservativeSenior says

    You want a good future – learn a trade. Read and teach yourself on your own time. These colleges aren’t teaching any more.

  35. Daniel says

    Sounds more like brainwashing to me!

  36. John Gagne says

    It is unconstitutional for the college’s to demand anything other than the subjects that the students have applied for. They interfere with their Freedom of choice on political and social choices is denying their Freedom on several amendments of the Constitution. The college should be fined and threatened with stopping any funding by a State or the fed. Government.

    1. Clay Fitzgerald says

      Although it isn’t right, I doubt very much that it amounts to being unconstitutional. If you believe that is the case, why and how is it unconstitutional? Please cite Article and Section of the Constitution that you think is applicable.

      1. John Gagne says

        Short of time at the moment,but I can start with the first Amendment.

        1. Clay Fitzgerald says

          Gotta explain your reasoning for that one, too. Just how is it a violation of the first amendment and which part? I would suggest if you don’t have the time, why bother responding at all, huh?

  37. Larry Cowden says

    They will probably get away with this unless parents can step in and tell them to either stop the policy or get their asses kicked out of office.! From what I have seen of college students today, most are too damn dumb to know they are being played, brainwashed and made pawns out of by the liberal left. NONE of them have any so called “critical thinking skills” to know when they are being made fools and tools of!

  38. jmscrcrn says

    What if critical thinking causes one to devalue cultural differences? How about if this assignment requires the student confront the injustice of being coerced into a particular point of view?

  39. Vassiliki says

    The worse is that they have to pay for these mandatory classes!!! Too many BS classes in college. No way in hell am I going to pay for a class like that to indoctrinate my daughters!

  40. jreb57 says

    The only kind of social justice is equal application of the law. That was the reason for limited government. Socialism is NOT social justice. It is stealing from one and giving to another.

  41. Justin Seine says

    It’s nice to know that when you spend that kind of money to send your kids to Amherst they will have plenty of places to hide from reality. Keep the real world out and live in one created by a pack of Academia Nuts who went to college and never left. A place where they will have their heads filled with nonsense that will never get them anywhere other than teaching at the same Indoctrination Center or one just like it.

  42. MIKE6080 says

    time to close the universitys , they have already burned the books

  43. Karen says

    This is why it is VERY IMPORTANT to know about the college you choose for your “Higher Learning” It is now just as important to know all about the school you choose as it is to know your major!! If enough students steer clear of these ‘Liberal” colleges, they will have to change their liberal ways to match mainstream American learning as opposed to indoctrination! Wake Up America!!

  44. dinkerduo says

    A lot of things are going to change with a Trump presidency—colleges for one—stop all *tenure*—nobody should have a job they can’t be fired from–without going to court etc. to fire the profs.!!!
    These colleges of today are socialist/Communists brain washing mills and it must stop—not everyone needs to go to college–especially at these HIGH prices—most would do well to go to a trade school instead—we don’t need anymore pencil pushers who need *safe rooms* in college at the ages of 18/22 years old—they need to be put back in grade school for a do over!!!

  45. CHARLES S says

    The Communist agenda at work… pushing their ideology.

  46. KayO says

    A man named Curtis Bowers made a film and was showing it to a group of folks. At the meeting, a man stood up and complimented Mr. Bowers on his research, and he even said that everything the film documented was absolutely on-the-nose correct. The man then stated that he was a professor at a local college, was a member of the Communist Party USA, and that there was nothing anyone could do because “we’re taking your children”. No joke. Watch the films, folks. This information is important: Agenda Grinding America Down and Agenda 2 Masters of Deceit. Your teenage and older children should see them, too. They’re the targets!

  47. Mathematical certainty says

    It is perfectly legitimate for UMASS to indoctrinate their students with asinine courses, because UMASS is not an accredited University. It only accepts a population of left-wing-liberal-one-digit-IQ-slugs. The faculty at UMASS consists of a population of left-wing-liberal-one-digit-IQ-knuckle-dragging-slugs. Both populations illustrate the amoebic-mentality within the State. The only worthwhile level of higher education in Massachusetts is MIT. Let us hope MIT stays neutral.

  48. NavymanBill says

    My wife went to UMASS Amherst. Oh, well-one less place I won’t consider sending my son to. What a load of PC Crap!!

    1. AKLady says

      Your son will probably have reached thw age of majority by the time he is ready for college.

      1. NavymanBill says

        Okay, so HE can pay for it, troll!

        1. AKLady says

          Why do you embarrass America with childish name calling?
          That is something most children give up by the 2nd or 3rd grade.
          Why would anyone agree with a adult who is that immature?

          1. NavymanBill says

            Why do you embarrass yourself with inane , half-thought out comments? I don’t give a damn what YOU think, AKlady. We have sparred before. Yes, he can make his own decisions, but if I am paying for them, as his parent, I AM the one who gets the final say! And don’t tell me that you wouldn’t feel the same way!!! As for maturity, I have watched you in this thread. Posting the same postings over and over again, and others call you on it, and you STILL persist? Put the bong down and get some counseling.

          2. AKLady says

            My parents did not pay for my education.
            I have not paid for my children’s education.

            My children followed my footsteps and advice — they studied, worked, and saved. One received a full-academic scholarship. One attended a U.S. Military Academy. One attended the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences.

          3. NavymanBill says

            Please save me your sob story. I attended the US Military Academy, enlisted in the US Air Force, and got sent back to college in AFROTC. I served in USAF for 4 1/2 years, working on MY FIRST master’s degree at night and on weekends. Paid for by ME and the GI Bill. I transferred to USN, and graduated from the US Naval War College at night, driving 360 miles each week to attend.(after work) I’m mostly through a third one-which I had to set down as I am a first responder from 9/11/01 WTC Disaster, and my studies were interrupted and then my son was born. YOU ARE NOBODY TO TELL ME ABOUT HARD WORK! GET LOST!!

            WTF does any of this have to do with me having a say where MY kid goes to college? And if he goes to West Point or Annapolis, and then goes to USELESS, I’ll hand him over the money we’ve set aside. This conversation is over.

          6. AKLady says

            Your adult child gets to choose the college he/she chooses to attend.

            You have made it clear that you believe you have the right to coerce that decision making.

          7. NavymanBill says

            GFYS.

          8. AKLady says

            Thank you.
            You have just shown the world what you are.

          9. NavymanBill says

            Apparently the message got hung up, but it’s okay-it was coming to that. You finally showed your hand-thank you. . An arrogant, smug, self-important, self-satisfied retired military officer/retiree. I’ve dealt with dozens like you. You think you know it all, and that you’re so much better and smarter than everyone else, and that no one else worked as hard as you. What a load of crap. And your kids had so much choice in their careers. And you didn’t ride YOUR parents coattails? You make me want to puke, Colonel/Captain. I LOATHE people like you. Drop Dead.

          10. AKLady says

            Well you can loathe all you want.
            Apparently, a military doctor never had to stitch your parts back togeather. Guess, you were too young to have seen combat in Vietnam.

          11. NavymanBill says

            I was there-Mar-April ’75 in Thailand (and “Nam and Cambodia). Don’t recall seeing YOU there?? Where YOU ever in-country? . BTW USELESS wasn’t created until after Nam was over so if you were there(Which I doubt) it wasn’t as a doctor.
            (Just for the record. I did respond to this post earlier-my posts seem to be hanging up, as do several of yours.)
            However, that doesn’t change a thing. YOU are a troubled person, AKLady. Do you have any friends? This seems to be a real outlet for you-making smug/snarky comments to people you don’t know. And you have that sr officer/mil retiree complex that you are so much smarter than everyone else-which EVERYONE know is a load of crap. I know you don’t see too many people where you live-but you really should find someone to talk to. it would help.

          12. AKLady says

            Do you feel better now?
            Save your insults for someone you can impress.

          13. NavymanBill says

            My, my. guess I touched a nerve, eh? I couldn’t care less about impressing you AKLady. From 1 to 10 on my Care list, you’re about minus 30. But seriously, get some counselling. Good luck.

          14. AKLady says

            If that is the case why did you write this post?
            Do you feel better now?
            Seriously, get some counselling, and some additional education while you are at it.

          15. NavymanBill says

            I have been responding to you because I have you pegged-and I have dealt with dozens of stuck-up senior officer/military retiree creeps like you over the past forty years, who think they have it ALL over everyone else because they have a few degrees (And THAT IS ALL YOU HAVE OVER ANYBODY.) And really, what difference does it make up there in Alaska? You don’t even practice anymore. You just write obnoxious posts bragging about your “superior education”.(what a joke. It would be comical if you weren’t so serious.) . As I have explained I have a few degrees also, and a hell of a lot more military experience. Your superiority complex is grounded in nothing but a good education and a WORLD CLASS SENSE OF ENTITLEMENT, born of privilege!! Colonel/Captain,I am just not going to let you get away with your self-important baloney. I had to deal with too many jerks LIKE YOU, to take any more crap from ANOTHER has-been also-ran! As for the counselling-that was MY SUGGESTION TO YOU, lady!!. You need to try to be a little more original! As for the education, mine’s as good as yours (ANYONE can get into USELESS), and I wasn’t freeloading off the taxpayers! You really need to quit being so self-important, and self impressed-nobody cares, and nobody is buying your act. You might want to try to make a friend or two. I guess it gets lonely up there, and it’s obvious you don’t have any.

          16. AKLady2015 says

            If the VA is too busy, you can find a civilian psychistrist. If you have spent too much on drugs and alcohol, there shuld be a neithborhood mental health clinic near you.

          17. NavymanBill says

            AKwoman, I am simply laid low by your rapier-like wit.(smirk), It ALL boils down to this: You don’t like ME because I refuse to genuflect to your supposedly “superior intellect and education”. Which most people come to realize after a certain age, SIGNIFIES NOTHING!! My own mother (two master’s degrees)-came to realize in her seniority that the people who had been the best to her in her life DIDN”T HAVE ANY! It is NO MEASURE OF ANYTHING BESIDES HARD WORK AND DEDICATION-(I’ll give you that) – And that’s a fact!! It doesn’t make them any better than ANYBODY. I KNOW that’s not how they teach you in Medical School, but I have worked with PLENTY of doctors, and most of them aren’t worth a damn until they are about 40 y/o, and have learned that despite their best efforts. people still died, and that in spite of a screw-up or two, the patient still lived!! And they also realized that other people are plenty smart-they just chose a different route!! AND YOU CAN’T HANDLE THAT!!!! As for me, I don’t like YOU because I think you are an elitist snob who got away with pulling the wool over people’s eyes by virtue of your rank/education/upbringing etc., and NOBODY BESIDES ME EVER CALLED YOU ON IT!!! Actually, I’m almost sorry for you-because that is all you have to hold onto! (Sad)(I am a LOT MORE THAN MY EDUCATION AND WHERE I WENT TO COLLEGE. Evidently, YOU haven’t gotten past that. One last thing: I guess you never learned in YOUR military career that REAL fighting men LIKE to fight!. YOU INITIATED THIS EXCHANGE! I will go back at you FOREVER. I enjoy the exchange! If you are as “Brilliant” as you profess to be, you might want to just walk away. I won’t pursue you, but if you come at me again, I’ll just take more shots-I have lots of ammo, and your “nonny-nonny boo-boo” insults make me smile. Up to you.

          18. NavymanBill says

            AKwoman, on the drive home, I figured you out. A serious overachiever, to compensate for an inferiority complex, likely born out of poverty.”Girl from wrong side of tracks works hard, makes good.” NEWSFLASH-you’re NOT the only one. I recognize that you troll these sites, making what you think are clever comments to provoke people-AND YOU GET OFF ON IT. I’m sure you think you are just so much smarter than everyone else that we’re supposed to be awed by your brilliance. (That over-compensation thing again.) It isn’t so, but if it makes you feel better about yourself, go for it. I’ve had enough fun with you for today. BYE.

          19. AKLady says

            News flash, both of my parents were highly educated.
            News flash, both of my parents were Comissioned Officers.

          20. NavymanBill says

            So, it was EASY FOR YOU!! You already had a pedigree. NEWSFLASH FOR YOU SWEETHEART. MY parents were first generation Americans-my father was an EM3 in WWII . My mother went to public HS/College on scholarship-AND YOU”RE COMPLAINING TO ME ABOUT HARDSHIP? YOU’RE THE ONE BORN WITH THE SILVER SPOON IN THEIR MOUTH, GFYS, SWEETHEART!!

          21. AKLady says

            Exactly what “hardship” have you assumed I have complained about?

          22. AKLady says

            You said good-by, but you obviously did not mean it.
            You keep coming back — like an insect to a light bulb.

          23. ABO says

            Your theory is invalid AKL, after all you’re not the brightest bulb in the chandelier.

    Welcome to Marxism 101 what is next the the hammer and sickle?

  50. Ronald Hagler says

    Can you say 1930’s Germany, Hitler and the Nazi movement? I’ve said it once and I’ll continue to say it: Obama is the head figure in a party which has evolved into the 2nd coming of Nazism and Social change as once was employed by the Nazi party in Germany. They indoctrinated their youth into the belief’s of the Third Reich, including having the young ones turn in anyone, even their parents, helping the Jewish citizens! Can you say Gestapo?

  51. Ronald Hagler says

    The liberal minions are so blinded by thoughts of “equality” that they can no longer see the real picture. There is no equality under socialism, only a one-party system divided into two classes: the leaders and the followers. There can be no equality in a truly socialistic system, as there is no quality. This is what the Democrat’s leaders have envisioned for years: total power and total control. too bad the liberal minions fail to recognize this.

    1. AKLady says

      Equality under the law has absolutely no connection to socialism.
      It has every connection to that which our Nation stands for.
      Thomas Jefferson’s “socialism” is what provided the public education system.

      Social contract theory set foundation concepts that became the underpinnings of democratic government. The theory influenced the implementation of democratic government in many countries and had particular influence on the framers of the U.S. Constitution.

  52. Deborah G says

    I refuse to pay for tuition for my kids at ANY liberal left wing college. If they wanted to go there they could……on their own dime. One went to Engineering school[Not social engineering] The other went to a well known conservative school. Diversity was all there just not forced nor were left wing ideologies

    1. AKLady says

      Our Founding Fathers were the “left wing” of their era.
      You might want to try to keep that in mind.

      1. Deborah G says

        They were however they were also strong Christians who believed in the Judeo/Christian basis of our laws. One was a presumed atheist however over time he came back to his Christian faith. The tryanny now is the left.

        1. AKLady says

          Or founding fathers werw not orthodox Christians.
          They were Naturists, Unitarians and Diests.

          Get ot the history books ans learn a few facts.
          You are embarassing America with your religius bigotry and ignoeance.

  53. John Williams says

    Maybe if they taught common sense rather than left wing drivel, the kids would actually come out of college and be able to function in the real world.

  54. AKLady says

    Social justice is the fair and just relation between the individual and society.

  55. downs1 says

    Amazing! Social justice, but doesn’t apply to the the rights of Christians or Jews. OK for the LGBTQ folks, but not for straights who believe in God and His word. There is a great reckoning coming soon. Won’t these foolish people be surprised! Once again, they will reap what they have sown! Education doesn’t involve “education”, rather it is liberal “indoctrination”. And it will end in disaster for this once great country!

    Need to shut the school down.

  60. MILES E DRAKE says

    It is clearly time to defund and shut down these madrassahs of Marxism. The sole purpose of these taxpayer-supported institutions is to turn out generation after generation of unemployable hipsters, and now the doddering old communist wants to make them totally free and the bloodstained bisexual battleaxe wants to cancel the debt of every pierced and tatted stoner and slacker they have turned out. The United States now faces another determined attempt at communist revolution, emanating once again from these genteel cesspools of mendacity and indoctrination; the last time they tried this it was only stopped at Kent State, and we are likely to need Kent State on a national scale this time.

  61. RuFus92 says

    There is only one ethic that should be taught in schools in this country and that is first thing to do in a class room is to rise and recite the preamble to the Constitution while saluting the American flag. that’s all the ethic diversity we need in this country.

  63. Conservative says

    Indoctrination is not education! It’s no wonder these kids are graduation with massive debt and they cannot find a job. Political Correctness is ruining this generation and generations to come. The government, grade schools, high schools and colleges are producing a bunch of kids know no history except the lies filling their minds. When will people wake up and realize the liberal left-wingers are stealing free speech, free thought, free expression, free opinions along with most of the freedoms contained in our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Obama started out with the intention of “transforming America’ and he was going to bring us all together and there would no longer be Red States and Blue States. There would be only Purple States. In fact, he and the liberals have created more division, resentment and hatred when the wounds were nearly healed. The Democrats motto is “Divide and Conquer”.

  64. OlGyreneFU says

    This a perfect example of how taxpayer supported institutes of higher learning are being subverted by the liberal,socialist ideals espoused by the so called educators that we the taxpayers are supporting.

  65. MTnman says

    A book by Codevilla, THE RULING PARTY, fairly well describes how these factions, in agreement with the democratic party function, their purpose, and how to combat their influence. Every parent should give the book to their children entering college to better confront the indoctrination they are sure to receive.

    Close this propaganda pit and pull the funding! Put the confiscated money towards kids in trouble who want to put their kids up for adoption, the right way. There are lots of better ways to spend the money, rather than paying Anti-American Commies!

    Well it’s time We The American People who love Freedom unite and stand up for what is right! Almighty God has NOT left US as orphans. NC We your FellowAmericans are standing with you! ONE with God is an Army! Stand against this darkness. There should be a State & National OUT CRY! Is there not a Cause? I tell you NC Americans you MUST stand against this tyranny. God IS with US and the gates of hell shall not prevail against US!

    1. AKLady says

      What tyranny? Everyone complains, but all they bellow is spoke

      1. Austinniceguy says

        “Everyone complains, but all they bellow is spoke”. Would you mind explaining what the hell you’re trying to convey, you useless, worthless old drunk? Why don’t you learn to spell, until then go back to the bars, you old bar fly.

      2. warriorgal says

        No one is forcing Christianity on any one. Islam tenants have nothing in the value structure of America. America’s values & laws come from the bible, no other book. Without absolute law you have anarchy. Totalitarian Islamic jihad wants all unbelievers to submit to them & Koran or die. They are working their schemes while Americans continue to refuse the truth.

        1. AKLady says

          You really need additional data sources.
          The Catholics in the Central African Republic are murdering those who will not convert.
          Christians in America murder physicians
          Christians in America bomb medical clinics.

          1. warriorgal says

            AKLady, Please the Catholics are attempting to protect themselves from the likes of totalitarian jihadists. These savages are burning Christians ALIVE. They have been throwing children off cliffs and cutting of the heads of little boys. Don’t tell me about needing”additional data sources”. You need to wake up and see the truth. As for “Christians” murdering physicians, again you are incorrect. True disciples of Jesus Christ Messiah of Israel follow the example of Jesus the Christ. As Christ laid his life down for us, so we are commanded to love those who hate us. NEVER to kill. Killing is commanded in the Koran. Kill the infidels, smite them in the neck, hands and feet. Christians who follow the teachings of Jesus the Christ do NOT murder. We love our enemies. As a 9/11 Family I do NOT hate Muslims. I have studied their koran and find it lacking in love. I find their “god” contrary to the Jehovah God of the New Covenant. Just during Ramadan their have been over 150 attacks on people. How many attacks have Christians perpetrated since Ramadan began? Exactly, NONE! So please get your facts straight before you attempt to call these “Christians” disciples of Jesus the Christ. And by the way, ask me how many Muslims have I killed since they murdered my brother. NONE! Believe in Jesus Christ He is God in the flesh and he died for the sins of the world. He who believes in Him will NOT perish but have eternal life. I wish you true peace that is only found in Jesus the Christ. Amen. My nation is now 60 MILLION aborted babies. It has gotten so demonic that aborted babies are now SOLD as BODY PARTS. Do you need a liver, lung, or brains? This is how depraved my nation has become. Our leaders have declared we are a culture of DEATH not LIFE. Even today our Supreme Court ruled again, Planned Parenthood you have our vote. Doesn’t matter you have thousands of aborted babies in huge black plastic bags, cats and rats come in and eat the babies. It’s ok, in the name of convenience you can continue to slaughter the unborn with our blessings. After all they are only flesh, until we want to sell you as body parts. AkLady, there is God the Just Judge who sits on his Throne and he will not be silent forever. In that day, Americans will answer for the atrocities done to the most innocent and precious gifts sent to earth by God. Our God is a God of mercy but also severity . It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of an All Consuming Fire. Return to the Lord Americans.

          2. AKLady says

            I guess you have not bothered to read the Bible.

            It is not much different than the Quran, as it is also filled with murder and incitement to kill.
            God of mercy? Oh, my have you missed a whole lot of history. Christians have killed and murdered and killed and murdered …

            Both the New and Old Testament instruct Christians to kill infadels. Suggest you read Deuteronomy 13; Deuteronomy 17; Numbers 31;
            Revelations 20:15, Matthew 3:7, 3:10, 3:12 … Luke 19:27

    If any of those stupid kids in college thanks social justice works it’s nothing but a lie to steal from people who do work.

Look at any country that’s run by socialism Venezuela for one example read about it is collapsing hundreds own puke.

    It starts with the misnomer “university”. It is an indoctrination center for the libtard left.

  80. whisper says

    There are plenty of good university’s. All those opposed to this type of “brainwashing”, and who just want a good education should LEAVE.

  81. Sue V. says

    My child will not go there, and will choose another school to spend OUR money. Alumni need to stop all donations, and freeze all scholarships until this is stopped and the profs are released from their high paying jobs. Until this happens, our kids will be brainwashed, and I for one will not tolerate it on my dime.

  82. warriorgal says

    It IS TYRANNY because it goes against the absolutes of Almighty God. Two percent of the population, which controls media, and politicians are forcing decent God loving Americans to bow to their choice of behavior. It is a disgrace and NC Americans should be OUTRAGED. All the media does is focus on the small crowd of LGBT, why don’t show the tens of thousands who are standing up for their children and families? Hypocrites. STAND UP NC AMERICANS! Those that are with you are FAR GREATER than those who are against you.

    This sounds like politically correct agenda that is created by neo-Marxists who live in academic ivory towers and had not yet heard that Communism/Socialism does not work and that there is a wide difference in cultures. Some cultures create new values and wealth, while come destroy. The totalitarian, supremacist and imperialistic IDEOLOGIES, such as Communism/Socialism, Fascism, Nazism and Islam crush human spirit and bodies.

    Our American culture is based on Judeo/Christian values of Decalogue and promotion of self-sufficiency, independence, meritocracy and free markets of ideas and projects…First and Second Amandment of US Constitution is a basis of our pursuit of happiness and preventing tyranny such as imposing this politically correct cultural relativism in US academia,

    Just wonder how much higher this trash can keep growing. Where is the outcry from the public and if there isn’t much then this country is finished.

  87. RMorrow says

    This is Nazi Liberalism at work. With Liberals, it’s more important to hate, lie, smear, and attack anyone who disagrees with them. This is the mental illness of Liberals. Rules and laws are for everyone but the Liberals who do not want to be offended ever with truth. We call that insanity.

  88. jimdarnall says

    I fully believe that our colleges have become a breeding ground for communism/socialism/liberalism. They are turning your children into weapons of destruction instead of teaching the real needs of life.

  89. Name says

    WE need to cut all fed money to this school. People also need to stop sending the kids there.

  90. Wapitiman says

    What is this elusive ‘social justice’? It’s “My way, or the highway!”

  91. reylaces says

    I thought college was a place to share ideas, not be indoctrinated,

    1. MTnman says

      Not if you attend the Ivy league.

  92. hiphop says

    These higher learning institutions are nothing but money hungry cesspools of socialistic and radical teaching. They are failures with giving their students marketable and critical thinking skills. I had a better education coming out of high school than these kids have coming out of colleges today.

    1. MTnman says

      You could have heard the vacuum of silence, among several tables, at a regional bridge tournament when, in pertinent conversation, I referred to Harvard as “the liberal cesspool of the East.”

      1. hiphop says

        Not too long ago the web page below was posted on facebook. Apparently Harvard also allows activist to spew hate.

  93. MTnman says

    Actually, these University “guidelines” squelch diversity so as to provide more room in any discussion to implant a Marxian view of “social justice” and “cultural differences” – cultural Marxism.
